The Free Territory of Whallhall is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Direct Democratic Regime with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.033 billion Whallhallians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valhall. The average income tax rate is 99%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.

Military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Whallhall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whallhall's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Resource generative.

Whallhall is ranked 5th in Nordic Lands and 707th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 257 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
